Jutti

The jutti is a traditional Indian shoe especially of Punjabi origin. Elsewhere, similar Indian shoes are called "khussa" or "mojri". They are usually made of fine leather and are delicately embroidered with threads or beads. Jutties are slip-on in style and are characterized by rising high to the Achilles' tendon in the back and covering the toes with a round or M-shaped heavily-embroidered upper shoe and leaving the top of the foot nearly bare.Some of them are hand-made and have been embroidered beautifully.These ethnic shoes were worn by Maharajas and Maharanis of India, various designs showcased in this category are inspired from the Mughal period. All these are handmade by skilled artisans in remote corners of India.
